For decades, every year, the Australian Open has produced some of the most memorable men's matches in tennis history. Because of that fact, it's quite difficult to select the best of the best.

So, what's the solution?

You pay tribute to 10 of the best with the disclaimer that there are so many more that are deserving to be listed.

In determining the matches for this list, the criteria was not just determined by the tremendous skill set of each athlete participating, but also by the significance of the match in respect to the tournament as a whole. 

Due to the huge selection to choose from, do be sure to share your favorite in the comment section. Or, if by chance your favorite has already been highlighted, share your thoughts on the match.

To begin this slideshow, it seems so appropriate to congratulate Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray, as well as Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, on their 2012 semifinal matches. 

The 2012 Australian Open men's final is set with Novak Djokovic vs. Rafael Nadal.

These three matches will surely be viewed for years to come as not only being three of the best in Australian Open history, but tennis history in general.

The following slides are in no particular order, as they are all great in their own way.



Note: There are a few videos of some of these great matches. So, do feel free to reminisce.
